About

In any sport or activity there will be mishaps. The important thing about triking incidents and accidents, is to learn from them.

This is where we can do that. So please post accidents, reasons for the accidents, and solution to the accident here so we have a central place to learn.

    Correct me if I am wrong. :) There is a possibility that the result was a combination of things that happened that caused this. Possibly one thing contributed to it more than others. What I am looking for is someone to post on youtube...a ...

    Hi Lucien: Its hard to judge and analyse everything from a video from afar but even if what you say is right, I would suggest you can have this happen in a Delta jet trike and it would not result such a severe duck walk. In fact you can drop like ...

    tail-dragger trikes! you could build one of dem 50cc scooters into the tail wheel, swivel the hang block to turn 90deg and drive your tike home, (and my dad said i'd never amount to much!)

    Aw shoot, Monsty, all this talk and you pop with the perfect solution. How about nipping over to NZ and modifying our trikes to make 'em safer. While you're here you could give me my retraining, because Doug is laughing too hard to be of any ...

    Lucian, in New Zealand us trikers are unquestionably the bad boys of aviation: self taught hang glider pilots on homemade wings becoming self taught trikers putting homemade carriages on hang glider wings. The two of us who are regular long term ...

    And to be fare I do believe pulling in after touchdown in heavy or gusting Xwind on hard pavement is wise as to not let the tires ever come back offf once it's down as it will turn sideways if it lifts. She as Paul says. Options. I feel some options ...

    One thing for sure is that there are a number of "options" of how to approach and land a trike.

    Lucian, I believe the correct answer to Bryan's question is to keep the bar out until the aircraft is slowed to almost a taxi speed, or you want to brake or steer with the nose wheel. In my opinion the only way to executive a soft field landing, ...

    Brian T. asked: " ever land in rabbit-hole infested back-country tussock-ridden paddocks, or boggy mud flats at low tide, or river terraces with rocks concealed beneath long grass?" Why in the world would anyone choose to land in such places ...

    Understand Larry we can agree to disagree that's fine, but if you closely watch his wing you do not see the angle change at all, so he did not let the bar in. bar in would allow you to see the wing tips go up and the nose drop lower. Yes he ...
